Messages of the Wind
A Message from the Hopi Elders
You have been telling the people that this is the eleventh hour....
Now you must go back and tell the people that this is the hour....
and there are things to be considered :Where are you living? .....
What are you doing?
What are your relationships ?
Are you in the right relationship?
Where is your water?
Know your garden.
It is time to speak your truth.Create your community....
Be good to each other.
And do not look outside yourself for the leader.
There is a river flowing now very fast.
It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid.
They will try to hold on to the shore.
They will feel they are being torn apart , and they will suffer
Know the river has its destination.
The Elders say we must let go of the shore....
Push off into the river,Keep our eyes open, and our head above the water.
See who is there with you and celebrate.
At this time in history, we are to take nothing personally....
Least of all ourselves .
For the moment that we do, our Spiritual growth and journey comes to ahalt.
The time of the lone wolf is over.
Gather yourselves !
Banish the word struggle from your attitude and your vocabulary .
All that we do know must be done in a Sacred manner and in celebration.
We are the ones we've been waiting for !
The Elders, Oraibi, Arizona , Hopi Nation.The Hopi People
trace their history in Arizona to more than 2,000 years,
But their history as a people goes back many more thousands of years.
The tribe's teachings relate stories of a great flood and other events dating to ancient times, marking the Hopi as one of the oldest living cultures in documented history.
A deeply religious people ,
they live by the ethic if peace and goodwill .
The Hopi Reservation ,
in northeastern Arizona , encompasses approximately 1.5 million acres .
Having inhabited this high and dry area since the 12th century ,
the Hopi have developed a unique agriculture practice " dry farming ".
Instead of plowing their fields ,
Hopi traditional farmers place " wind breakers " in the fields
at selected intervals to retain soil , snow and moisture.
They also have perfected special techniques to plant seeds in arid fields.
As a result ,
they succeed in raising corn , beans , squash , melons and
other crops in a landscape that appears inhospitable to farming .
